Resell WordPress Hosting. Why Should you do it & How-To-Do Guide

Resell WordPress hosting is a profit stream that one often underlooks.

Your marketing agency helps clients succeed by offering a wide range of digital services that help with website hosting, web design, SEO, and paid advertising.

The best part about this revenue opportunity is that it offers passive income, and all you have to do is provide the gateway for hosting your clients’ WordPress websites.

How do you do it?

Read on to discover our guide for reselling web hosting for WordPress to help your clients and realize extra revenue.

Why Should I Resell WordPress Hosting for websites?

First, WordPress is enormously popular as a website design framework. Around 455 million websites run on WordPress as a content management system (CMS).

As such, many hosting companies (who own or provide access to the servers that host the WordPress websites) cater to this platform.

WordPress websites are:

  • Easy on hosting requirements
  • Compatible with many popular hosting sites
  • Simple to manage
  • Easy to upgrade with WordPress plugins
  • Come with many themes from which to choose

A hosting company that specializes in WordPress websites already knows the protocols it needs for these types of websites.

How Do I Resell WordPress Hosting?

When you buy your groceries at the supermarket, you pay retail prices. The store itself uses its purchasing power to purchase grocery items in bulk, at wholesale prices, before marking them up around 30 percent to make a profit. 

That’s how reselling works in the retail grocery market.

The same thing happens when you resell WordPress website hosting.

As an agency, you have more buying power to purchase website hosting because you need those resources for your clients as a service you provide to them.

Your company may buy 500 slots of WordPress hosting for two years. Hosting companies often offer discounts for longevity of hosting and the number of websites you host.

For example, a hosting company may offer hosting at $10 per month when you sign up for a year. That comes to $120 a year per website. Let’s say you charge $150 a year for just basic hosting. That’s a markup of $30 a year.

Multiply that by, say, 500 websites, and you have an additional revenue stream of $15,000 a year.

And it’s mostly labor-free without any additional costs.

You’re just tapping into the connections you already have with your hosting companies.

Benefits to Resell WordPress Hosting

Your agency can realize many potential benefits when you offer to resell hosting for WordPress websites.

Passive Income

You don’t have to do much to earn this income (check here how to become a digital nomad). The web hosting company already has the infrastructure in place to host WordPress websites. You’re just offering a way to monitor the website to make sure it’s still running and active. 

Websites just sit in the background and continue to work while you derive an extra income.

Low Labor Costs

Compared to designing a website or writing blogs every month, a resell for WordPress websites provides very low overhead and labor costs.

All you have to do is provide the credentials for signing into the host, transfer hosting from the previous host, and most of the rest of hosting doesn’t take much effort.

Offering Full Control Over the Website

Having access to the domain’s website gives you, the agency, as well as your clients full control over their website. You can set redirects, reset passwords, revert to a previous version of the website, and enhance cybersecurity features by having access to the WordPress host.

You get to upsell your services at hourly or monthly subscription rates while giving your clients peace of mind that their website is in good hands in case something on the back end of the website breaks or causes problems.

What Tips & Tricks Can I Utilize to Resell  WordPress Hosting For My Client’s Websites?

Different clients have different needs. That’s why you can diversify your reselling options for hosting WordPress websites.

Offer Tiered Plans

Perhaps you should offer three tiers of simple plans. The most basic is one year of hosting at $50 a year per site. The second tier can offer one hour of website changes per month at $100 a month. Not all of your clients will use this feature. The third plan, at $200 a month, offers metrics for your site that you can use automated tools to generate.

Explain the Benefits

You already know why the features of WordPress hosting offer benefits to your clients.

You can expound on these benefits, such as alerts if something happens, quick response times to difficulties, and customer service hours that work with your clients.

Your team goes above and beyond just simple WordPress hosting when you offer services related to what your clients pay for.

Upsell Opportunities

Your agency likely offers other services, like web design, SEO, and paid advertising.

When you resell hosting for WordPress websites, you create a gateway for upsell opportunities for other services.
